Pocket watches. Even if I didn't have a nickel allergy (even on hypoallergenic ones they tend to forget the back plate for the watch and make it from stainless steel) a pocket watch would be more interesting than a normal one. Yes, there are much cooler things about steampunk in general, but that happens to be what I enjoy the most.

@elandria: I have several pocket watches. The one I use most has a view of the inside workings.

I had a belt case made by one leather vendor that I met at a convention in Atlanta. It looks very nice on the cube farm.

Feel the envy, my pocket watch died and the new battery didn't help, so my cell's my only "watch" until I find a decent jeweler to have look at it. I'd actually like to get some clockwork art to hang around the living room too, likely in the watercolor tones of old maps. It just strikes me as being a good point of interest without an overwhelming "pretty" factor that my husband and son wouldn't exactly appreciate.

@elandria: mine stops often.. I forget to wind.

@elandria: My grandpa, before he passed, gave me a pocket watch that cranks. No batteries required. It's pretty cool. It has a train engraved on the back.

Sorry but no interest here.

I love the whole setting of steampunk: that strange mix of the Victorian Era with steam-and-gears machinery in a metal world is just so nifty.

I don't dress steampunk in any way, but I just love the setting for books, movies, games, etc.

For some odd reason, I kind of like steampunk. Every time I see one, the little guy inside me wants it but I don't know why.
